Squirrel Fallon in my Mouth

PerrystaringThis week has been an awesome week PEOPLE!

I have been on the move more lately as Dad is gaining strength and started walking more. Thank goodness for Mom as she continues to walk me in the mornings, and I am trying my hardest not to pull. This becomes difficult when I see my friends and this week Boris’s Mom was walking him and I practically jolted across the street – Mom was not a happy camper.

The weather has continued to be a too hot for my liking. Today in Santa Monica it was 85 degrees with almost 80% humidity.

Even with the hot weather I have to share with you how exciting my week was. So I was hanging out by the back door looking quietly and intently at something outside. Dad opened the door and instead of bolting out as usual I went very slowly…almost crawling.

With my military style, focused eyes and stealth position, I waited and waited. Then I pranced and that stupid PITA squirrel tried to jump higher on the tree upside down and FELL right into my mouth.  I was elated for a whole second but then freaked out and that thing got away!

I knew right then that I had scarred that little fur thing because it panted and was out of breath and stood motionless in the tree.

Of course this made me bark like crazy, which in return made Dad crazy. He said something like, “Do you think that squirrel is gong to come down and jump back in your mouth?”

I was worried the squirrel was tweeting to his squirrel world to stay away from me but maybe less PITA activity in the yard is a good change of pace.

Even though it wasn’t a full capture I hope I showed that PITA whose yard it is and the score is turning….

Perry – almost 1 …PITA almost dead!

The GOP debate got heated this week – maybe even more than our house was with the humidity! I’m still the undecided voter and just enjoying all the funny interviews on Jimmy Fallon this week – it you haven’t seen the Trump and Clinton segments you’ve really missed out!

Have a great week peeps!



Hot, Hotter and Hottest…

PerrySmartrollerThis weather is absolutely horrendous PEOPLE!

Our house remains an oven with temperatures in the high 80’s at night, and 90’s during the day. Maybe we should start sleeping outside.

All I have wanted to do is lay around the house, pant and eat ice cubes.  Mom tried to get me to do my Smartroller today to feel better but I just could not muster the energy.

It is too hot to write this and the debates aren’t till Wednesday so stay tuned.

I need to get Dad up and outside to hose me down.

Love and Coolness,


Perry, Peace and Politics

Finally it’s a little cooler! I have had a big week and have a few things to report.

First, we have a new intern, Jess, who is really cool and I have a little crush on her. I am branching out as she is a brunette and as we all know I have a thing for blondes.

Mom still continues to take me on longer walks. However, I sometimes get two walks because in the evening we go again and Dad can now go around the block. Things are looking up.

JessandPerryAs for news – tis the season of politics and here’s my quick commentary on it all.

Hillary better get a jogging pant suit so she can pick up the pace and pull away from Bernie and her server as they are fast approaching.

Jeb might need a little energy drink and an ice pack from the hair lashing he got from Trump.

Potential Doctor President candidate has a dry sense of humor, and he’s catching up to Trump’s hair.

PerrySocksAll in all it seems that the unlikely hoods are racing to the top of the polls as America’s thirst for realism outweighs usual politics. Has reality TV crossed over to Washington?  Sit tight as it should be a fun CNN debate.

As you can see I have my socks on to wade through it all.

Please continue to pray for the safety of those who serve and protect our country. All lives matter in this world.

The weather in Santa Monica was a pleasant 75 degrees today.

Slow, Hot and Political

PerryhotAs summer is trying to wind down it continually feels like a hairdryer is blowing in my face…ALL THE TIME…and I don’t even have Trump hair.

Even my nemesis, PITA, attempts to taunt me by the window and I am too lazy to even lift my head to pay much attention to his pleas for play.

I have been a dutiful dog as Dad has been sick the last month with pneumonia and he has needed my company. I do get up with him when he slowly tries to do something. I mean we are talking slow like molasses with everything.

Thank goodness for Mom! She has been taking me on my walks and makes sure we get at least 45 minutes of healthy daily exercise. I still am working on my pulling issue but that comes from my Weimaraner genes.

As for the political front…

Orange pantsuit Hillary is roping off reporters and wiping servers clean with cloths…

Good Ole Bush is all about anchoring babies…

And Trump is trying to build a wall with his hair…

OK, back to being nurse dog for Dad and Mom’s walking partner because exercise with a partner is much better.

This Weather Weimaraner reports the weather as 85 in Santa Monica.  Some days it is 90 in our house so please continue to send ice cubes for snacks.

Stay cool and out of trouble people.


I had to SHARE my Turf!

IMG_2236It sure is hot in Santa Monica and I mean HOT, humid and did I say hot?

Yesterday was that godchild’s 1st Birthday and the parental’s had a party in his honor. What? When it is my birthday there is not much fanfare at all. OK, maybe a special treat, a photo and a nod on Facebook, but not a gourmet meal of recipes they are creating for the new cookbook and all the fixins.

People came from as far away as Georgia, Missouri and Italy. I of course was on my best behavior and tried to steal as much attention from the little man as I could. I decided to lie in the middle of the party and had people just walk over me. They were in MY backyard after all.  I made sure everyone could see me and ooh and aah over me versus that little person – I’m at least 3x his size so I figure that counts for something!

All in all, it was a good time and everyone enjoyed the gourmet food and satisfying conversation.

Mom has been busy with trainings, analyzing recipes and writing and Dad is still pretty sick but we are all holding tight together in this heat.

Please send your ice cubes to Santa Monica and maybe a few treats for me as well.



Perry Shares the Spotlight

perry zade bdayAs summer is in the end stretch, I continue to have adventures and amaze the parentals with my maturity. Don’t get too excited – I can still prank with the best of them – hence the name Punky!

This morning while Dad was photographing this year’s Thanksgiving card, (Rite-Aid doesn’t have anything on us LOL) Mom and I went on a walk and I can proudly report back I did not pull once. I went easy on her, but if it were Dad he would not be as lucky.

Mom called it a little summer miracle since I walked right next to her – I figured it was time to act respectable since after all – I do live in the People’s Republic of Santa Monica.

Over the last few weeks Dad and I have been hanging out more than usual in the backyard. Actually, to be more exact, he’s been working and I’ve been helping with getting into things and making a mess. I did have a few time-outs this week and all this for a party.

Since the parental units are Baby Zade’s godparents, which I guess makes them god-units, they are having his first birthday party in OUR backyard. Dad is all about milking this godfather thing all the while I am trying to deal with the idea of this party since the backyard is MY territory.

One redeeming fact is at least I was on the invitation. However, I don’ t know what is worse – Dad being obnoxious about the godfather thing or all this over a 1-year-old taking over my backyard. I guess I will do the neighborly thing and let others have a moment in the sun of narcissism.

The weather has been crazy hot, but nice evenings and mornings. We have been eating out side on the patio…yep the parental’s took that over now. I am starting to LEARN life is about sharing and respecting other’s boundaries.

On the sharing note…the Donald is still showing up with his HAIR People!

Peace out Punky

Road Trip

IMG_4181Yep that is right folks – Dad and I took a road trip. Just us guys and boy did we have fun, a little bit of trouble and a lot of homesickness for Mom.

Every year Dad takes me on an excursion to help with training and to get me adjusted more to different situations. I think he just likes to mess with my routine. Nonetheless, I find this outings pretty cool and I am always up for an adventure.

This trip was no exception…as you can see while we were supposed to be cleaning out a Koi pond I decided to “fall” in. I was so scared I just stood there and let all the fish nibble on my long legs. It was a hot day and unfortunately I smelled like the fish after this “swim.”

This trip involved more meet and greets of different animals and lots of children. Of course I was on my bestest behavior.

I did get the chance to hang out at my SLO town club – Thousand Hills Pet Resort. They were very nice and hooked me up with an awesome bath and trimmed my nails perfectly. If you are ever in that area check them out – it helped not to smell like fish for the remainder of the trip, and yes, I do get my omega 3’s elsewhere and had no interest in the fish.

Needless to say, once I got in the car to come home I crashed and for the last few days I have been very mellow and calm. I did hear the parentals talk about how the trip was a success. This makes me glad but I still don’t like long car rides.

The weather is odd here in Santa Monica…balmy, humid, and a little rainy and today the temperature in my casa is 85 degrees, which I am not happy about, but at least I’m home where I love to be.

Peace Out,
